Originally Fela Kuti's compound, Kalakuta (in Ikeja, Lagos) is now a museum and Seun, his youngest son rehearses there each week with his father's Egypt 80 band. This rare footage captures them preparing for their ‘Black Times' tour starting this month, February 2018. The new album will be released on 2nd March 2018 on Strut. Kuti's 3-song EP Struggle Sounds on Sony Music Masterworks, which was co-produced by Robert Glasper, featured his father's original band. The three songs on the album "Struggle Sounds," "Gimme My Vote Back (C.P.C.D.)," and "African Dreams" were all written by Seun and have strong social and political messages – a theme that Seun weaves into all of this music.   Watch the attached video
